A fat burning maching and Red Bull goes Orange


Become a Fat-Burning Machine

Mike Berland used to be like a lot of us. Lax on the exercise and diet. Now he’s all about eating right, moving and burning the fat. He makes it sound not too hard with an inspirational how-to book featuring recipes such as zucchini pasta with roasted tomatoes and chimichurri.
Can you do that? I could. There are menu plans and exercise moves and plans to take you where you want to go.
Where are you going to learn all this? In his book, “Become a Fat-Burning Machine.”
Here’s some very easy and flavorful advice from the pages:
Fat burning snacks
* Half cup guacamole, with cut veggies
* Cold asparagus spears
* Celery sticks with 2 tablespoons peanut or almond butter
* Endive filled with cream cheese, tuna or egg salad
* Half an avocado, filled with cream cheese
* Grilled peach or pear with cinnamon sprinkle
* 1 hard-boiled egg

Red Bull goes orange
I just had a sneak peek, or taste, of the newest Red Bull flavor, the Orange Edition.
It’s light and refreshing and not like your grandmother’s or grandkid’s Red Bull. I have never, ever enjoyed a Red Bull so much. In fact, mixologists are going to town with it, whipping up drinks like Orange Cosmopoitan Fizz, with cranberry juice. Here’s another one that is a “peeling” because it features basil. The orange is a tangerine twist.
